In The City Magazine’s “Week of Shrieks” Day 4: The ultimate Halloween songs playlist!

It’s hee-eeeere! Halloween weekend has arrived and to celebrate we here at In The City Magazine have launched a brand new Spotify page. For our inaugral playlist, we have put together a 30-track playlist full of Halloween songs we feel like you can’t miss this weekend.

There’s Pop, there’s Rock, there’s Funk and there’s Hip-Hop – there’s even a cheeky smattering of Metal!

Artists old and new are featured in our playlist, as well as a few bands from around the West Midlands that we feel you can’t live without. In the interests of keeping our Halloween Songs playlist (somewhat) family friendly, some artists didn’t make the final cut.

Did we miss any? Comment below with your suggestions and keep them coming, after all every day can be Halloween!

For our themed playlist for next month’s magazine we will be looking for Christmas Songs, so whether it’s the likes of Bing Crosby or Gary Jules, or something a little more naughty (like The Pogues’ “Fairytale of New York”), we want to hear your suggestions and why you have picked them!
